    Hi TAOW,<br>Very nice pistol. I think if the bands were placed like on the picture( flat)<br><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wercVIB_rsI/UVRGA9-Gf8I/AAAAAAAAA-w/lDQKocsdHnM/s714/untitled001.bmp" border="0" alt=""><br>it will be better looking and you will gain a little bit of power too. I would like to know Joerg or Failure' s opinion about that...<br>Very nice job and design you made there, congratzz!!!

    I saw there is a screw there... if you try them flat, you will have to find a solution for that otherwise the screw will damage your bands after the first or second shot. Hope you know what i mean, i am not good explaining things in english <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10">.

    <span class="postbody"><br>I think the bands will be ok if you just countersink them in a little bit more, and sand the edges of the hole. <br><br>Im with tokSick that it would look better having them "flat", and it would also make it easier to see if the bands are twisted. I dont know about power but most people does not like shooting with any kinbd of twisted bands, altough Lars did that with his draw-extension slingshot. Maybe you should short the string a bit too.<br><br>I must say that I like the the look of this weapon very much. It definetly looks like a killer <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Very nice work! <br></span><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    My tests revealed no difference in performance between twisted and straight bands. But straight bands look better, to me.

    Try putting a little bit more weight on the tip of your pencil bolt, it will fly straighter for much longer distances and you will not have the added air resistance of the flights.
